Thousands of Syrian Women Refugees Face a Daily Struggle for Survival While Heartless Muslim Regimes Look On

Thousands of Syrian Women Refugees Face a Daily Struggle for Survival While Heartless Muslim Regimes Look On

News:

On Tuesday 8th July, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees published a report entitled, "Woman-Alone – The Fight for Survival by Syrian Refugee Women". It stated that more than 145,000 Syrian families now living in Egypt, Lebanon, Iraq and Jordan are headed by women with sole responsibility for providing for themselves and their children because their men had been killed, captured, or were missing in Syria. This is 1 in 4 of all families who have fled the fighting in the country. The report details how these women face a life of severe poverty, harassment and isolation, and how they struggle daily to provide food and shelter for their children as well as protect their own dignity from criminals intent on violating them. 1 in 3 reported that they did not have enough to eat. The report reads, "Most faced a daily struggle to find enough money to pay the rent, buy food and basic items, or access services such as healthcare. Their stories were often heartbreaking: mothers having to spend hours getting their sick children to a hospital for treatment; mothers having no choice but to let their children work, or leaving their children alone to go find a way to make money." One woman, Faten, aged 70 and living in Cairo who was interviewed for the report, stated that she went without food to provide for her granddaughters aged 9 and 11. She said, "I don't eat until they're full. I'm happy to eat a toasted piece of bread to make sure they get enough to eat." Antonio Guterres, UNHCR Chief commented, "For hundreds of thousands of women, escaping their ruined homeland was only the first step in a journey of grinding hardship....They are being humiliated for losing everything." Almost 3 million people have now fled the country - nearly 4 out of 5 of them are women and children.
